Chicken and Broccoli In Oyster Sauce

The most common chinese dish that is easy to order is beef and broccoli. I used to date someone who will order this dish every time we have chinese food for lunch or dinner. I will usually just eat the broccoli and not the beef because I do not like the taste of the beef cooked at Chinese restaurants. So to ease my crave for broccoli cooked in oyster sauce, I decided to use chicken instead of beef.


1 piece of breast of chicken (diced)
1 head of broccoli, cut in florets
3 cloves of fresh garlic (minced)
1/2 yellow onion (diced)
5 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon corn starch
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoon oyster sauce
2 tablespoon soy sauce
3 tablespoon hoisin sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Heat up a large frying pan or a wok and add oil and garlic until brown. Add onions and stir for 2 minutes.

Add the chicken and stir until chicken is no longer pink

Rinse the broccoli, add and stir well

Add the black pepper, oyster sauce, soy sauce and hoisin sauce and stir, coat well
Mix corn starch with water and mix well and pour in the pan. Stir and cover, cook in medium high heat and cook for about 5 minutes
